Breast Augmentation / Breast Implant Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand
Breast augmentation is a common procedure performed by plastic surgeons, using breast implants that are placed sub-muscularly via an incision under the breast or around the areola. Although the technique is mostly the same as a mammoplasty augmentation in natural women, there are important anatomical differences between male and female chests in the case of male-to-female transsexual. Compare to natural women, breast envelope of the male-to-female transsexual is often undeveloped and tight so there may be less lipomatous tissue. Therefore, it greatly depends of the surgeon’s expertise and experiences to navigate through these limitations to achieve the best possible result for male-to-female transsexual.
Male-to-female transsexual patients should be aware that the surgery cannot perfectly recreate natural breasts of natural grown-up women, especially if they already exhibit age-related bodily changes. In most cases of male-to-female transsexual, cleavage proves to be the very hard to create.
Incisions of Breast Augmentation :
1. Under armpit
Breast implants available:
1. Texture gel filled prosthesis
2. Smooth gel filled prosthesis
3. Smooth saline pre-filled prosthesis
4. Smooth saline filled adjustable prosthesis
Placement of breast implant
Your implants will be placed either under or over your pectoral muscle depending on several factors including the size of your natural breast, skin quality and your breast shape.
The position of the implant will be decided prior to surgery between you and your surgeon at your consultations.
Breast implants placed under the muscle tend to give a slightly more natural upper “pole” of the breast and possibly a lower incidence of capsular contracture (scar tissue that can develop aroundan implant and cause the breast to feel hard)
1. Beneath breast tissue (Subglandular pocket)
2. Under the chest muscle (Subpectoral plane)
3. Partly under the muscle, partly under breast tissue (dual plane)

Risks and Complication of Breast Augmentation
• Scar tissue that distorts the shape of the breast implant (capsular contracture)
• Breast pain
• Changes in nipple and breast sensation
• Implant leakage or rupture
Correcting these complications might require more surgery, either to remove or replace the
